"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

Mafeking Day Victory Parade, Bulawayo, 23 May 1900
Topic: BW - NSW - NSWIB

NSWIB

New South Wales Imperial Bushmen

Mafeking Day Victory Parade, Bulawayo, 23 May 1900
 
 

Canadian Contingent leading the parade to celebrate Mafeking Day at Bulawayo, 23 May 1900.

[Sydney Mail, 21 July 1900, p. 147.]

 

While the Imperial Bushmen were making their way through Rhodesia, the siege at Mafeking ended with a British victory. 

A good contemporary account of this occasion is in the book of:

H. W. Wilson, "With the Flag to Pretoria: A History of the Boer War, 1899-1900", London, 1901. CHAPTER XXV, The Relief of Mafeking.


By the time the first units from the Imperial Bushmen arrived at Bulawayo, the second largest city in Rhodesia, the good folk were ready to let their hair go and celebrate the victory. Part of the victory celebrations was the participation in a Victory Parade by those members of the Imperial Bushmen's Contingent at Bulawayo. So on 23 May 1900, the Imperial Bushmen marched alongside their Canadian allies. Below is a photograph of the march past led by the Canadian contingent.

In the background of the photograph, the Imperial Bushmen can be seen marching along in their various troop formations. The Canadians in the lead seem to cut fine figures in their highly decorative uniforms. These highly visible dress coats had to be discarded very quickly when facing the Boers on the Veldt as they became instant targets for accurate Boer sniping.

Apart from a good day by all, that Blue Brand Aerated Water Factory sure beats having a Coke.

One way to finish this item off is to cite the highly forgetable poem penned by William Topaz McGonagall, poet and tragedian of Dundee, who still is widely hailed as the writer of the worst poetry in the English language...

 
The Relief of Mafeking

Success to Colonel Baden-Powell and his praises loudly sing,
For being so brave in relieving Mafeking,
With his gallant little band of eight hundred men,
They made the Boers fly from Mafeking like sheep escaping from a pen.

'Twas in the year of 1900 and on the 18th of May,
That Colonel Baden-Powell beat the Boers without dismay,
And made them fly from Mafeking without delay,
Which will be handed down to posterity for many a day.

Colonel Baden-Powell is a very brave man,
And to deny it, I venture to say, few men can;
He is a noble hero be it said,
For at the siege of Mafeking he never was afraid.

And during the siege Colonel Baden was cheerful and gay,
While the starving population were living on brawn each day;
And alas! the sufferings of the women and children were great,
But they all submitted patiently to their fate.

For seven months besieged they fought the Boers without dismay,
Until at last the Boers were glad to run away;
Because Baden-Powell's gallant band put them to flight
By cannon shot and volleys of musketry to the left and right.

Then long live Baden-Powell and his brave little band,
For during the siege of Mafeking they made a bold stand
Against yelling thousands of Boers who were thirsting for their blood,
But as firm as a rock against them they fearlessly stood.

Oh! think of them living on brawn extracted from horse hides,
While the inhuman Boers their sufferings deride,
Knowing that the women's hearts with grief were torn
As they looked on their children's faces that looked sad and forlorn.

For 217 days the Boers tried to obtain Mafeking's surrender,
But their strategy was futile owing to its noble defender,
Colonel Baden-Powell, that hero of renown,
Who, by his masterly generalship, saved the town.

Methinks I see him and his gallant band,
Looking terror to the foe: Oh! The sight was really grand,
As he cried, "Give it them, lads; let's do or die;
And from Mafeking we'll soon make them fly,
And we'll make them rue their rash undertaking
The day they laid siege to the town of Mafeking."

Long life and prosperity to Colonel Baden-Powell,
For there's very few generals can him excel;
And he is now the Hero of Mafeking, be it told,
And his name should be engraved on medals of gold.

I wish him and his gallant little band every success,
For relieving the people of Mafeking while in distress;
They made the Boers rue their rash undertaking
The day they laid siege to the town of Mafeking.

For during the defence of Mafeking
From grief he kept the people's hearts from breaking,
Because he sang to them and did recite
Passages from Shakespeare which did their hearts delight.

 

At least McGonagall's heart was in the right place. McGonagall's name was made with his publication of the famous "Tay Bridge Disaster" poem. If for no other reason than its forced doggerel, this poem about Mafeking lives on in the collections of English literature.

The movement of the Imperial Bushmen to Bulawayo, 1900

 

Bulawayo on the morning of Mafeking Day

[From: Sydney Mail, 21 July 1900, p. 146. ]

 

Bulawayo must have been an exciting town to live in at the turn of last century. The first picture is of Bulawayo township taken from the highest point in the city. The photograph gives a good summary of the condition and layout of the town in Rhodesia, 23 May 1900.

One obvious point that is readily visible is that Bulawayo on the morning of Mafeking Day displayed lots of bunting but there is not a soul in sight.

When the Canadian artillery passed through the town, it was such a spectacle that the whole town turned out to see the procession.

[From: Sydney Mail, 21 July 1900, p. 146. ]

 

Judging by the hight turnout of citizens, all white, the coming of the Canadians must have been very reassuring for the local population.

Following on just behind the Canadians were the Australians riding on the mule wagons. In this next picture, members of the Imperial Bushmen were hitching rides on the mule carts. Because of transport shortages, the men were literally loaded to the gunwales.

 

Imperial Bushmen travelling to Bulawayo on mule carts.

[From: Sydney Mail, 21 July 1900, p. 147. ]

 

Due to problems with horses, the use of mule carts was seen to be the easiest way to move large numbers of Imperial Bushmen quickly across Rhodesia.

Another group of Imperial Bushmen did everything to confound the Boer. Here is a troop of Bushmen riding prone on a low sided, sand bagged wagon guarding the procession from any potential of attack by the crafty Boer.

 

Imperial Bushmen as train guards.

[From: Sydney Mail, 21 July 1900, p. 146. ]

 

By all accounts, this was a most uncomfortable way to travel. The train made it quick but the accommodation was less than comfortable. It was difficult to maintain the prone position for very long, especially with a rifle in hand. One person left a description of this type of travel:

While it was possible to make oneself fairly comfortable in a Wolseley bed when in camp, you can never get comfortable on the hard floor of a truck; you have no protection against the "upward bumps."

Quoted from The Story of the Bushmen by James Green, William Brooks & Co, Sydney, 1903, at p. 24.

South African (Second Boer) War: 1899-1902, Embarkation Roll: CAR to CHA
Topic: BW - Boer War

South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902

Australian Participation - Full Index

Embarkation Roll: CAR to CHA

 

 

The following is an alphabetical roll of all Australians known members of the many military formations which embarked overseas during the South African (Second Boer) War, 1899-1902.

Each man is detailed on this reference list with the following information:

Service Number;

Rank on Embarkation;

First Names;

Family Name;

If applicable, any false name employed; and,

Service unit.

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.
